Mom, you are my best friend. I miss you so much. You always made me laugh and made me feel so loved. I loved spending time together with you and I always hated leaving. We had soo many great long conversations on the phone. I could almost hear Scotts eyes roll when I would call you, hehe because he knew we would be on the phone forever talking about everything and nothing. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to pick up the phone and call you because i am so sad, You always made me feel better whether it was from giving me advice or just lending an ear for me to vent. We were each others sounding boards. I'm sure going to miss that. Thank you for always being there for me, and making me know I was so loved. Every time I look at our Fairy gardens I will think of you and how much fun we had making them. It warms my heart to know how much you enjoyed them too. I will miss and think of you everyday. I love you bunches and bunches.
